It is quite possible to please none of the people all of the time.

Imagine that you and I are trying to come to an agreement about where to go on vacation. Let's say that we've both contributed money to our vacation fund, and we can only choose one place. I want to go to Miami (a southern beach), and you want to go to Chicago (a northern city). Then, in hopes of striking a compromise, I suggest that we go to Louisville instead.

Max Baucus' bill sounds a lot like Louisville.

And then you go to Louisville alone, because my goal is only to talk you down from Miami, not to actually go someplace with you.
